A photographer has won a prestigious award with a portfolio paying tribute to his father's skill in the garden.
Amateur photographer Michael I'Anson, from Pensthorpe, near Fakenham, took second prize with his collection of photos for the esteemed International Garden Photographer of the Year competition.
Mr I'Anson's portfolio, titled 'Ready, Prep, Grow', was chosen from among 20,000 entrants. His photos focus on the hands of his father, tending the allotment as he has for more than 60 years.
He said: "Since I was young, I have been enamoured by my father's ability to, year on year, produce a harvest for my family and I to enjoy.
"This portfolio is testament to his labour, and is dedicated not only to him, but to the generations before him who have tended the land with so much love."
An exhibition of the winners will be on display in Sheringham Park until Sunday October 27.
